Information and Page Layout
Use plenty of Headings and Sub Headings. People like to scan a page first when they are on the web and read the bits that are important to them first. IMPORTANT; Always, always. Use the same font colour, size and type for all your Headings and Sub Headings. Keep paragraphs short and cover only one subject under each heading. Rather than have to many subjects on one long page, have a separate page covering different specific subjects. e.g.; Instead of having Accommodation. Things to See and Do. About Us, all on one page. Create a separate page for each. Have an easy natural flow to the information that is presented. Then make sure your navigation follows the same pattern. All critical paths should have one persuasive purpose. To make it irresistible, easy and secure for the visitor to make an enquiry, a booking, or a purchase before leaving your website.
Maximum 70 characters long.
This is your page title. It simply needs to contain some good key words and reflect the page purpose and content.
Maximum 155 characters long. This needs to be in a readable, sensible sentence format, using as many keywords as possible. The meta tag or description should be about this one web page only. Not the whole web site. It should describe with as many keywords as possible, what this particular page is about. This is what many search engines will present when listing your web site as a search result. The meta description should be a maximum of 155 characters in total.
Before adding any keywords ... STOP AND FOCUS on the purpose of this one webpage. Blockout every other webpage of the website and just focus on this one page.
Then add just 2 keywords or key phrases.
Now leave this webpage for 2 weeks, then come back and read the entire webpage and review your chosen keywords and see if they are the most relevant keywords/phrases you can think of.
If you are satisfied they are ... THEN
NOW ... You can put in as many keywords, singular and as many keyword phrases as you can. Key phrase (2- 5 keywords) separated by a comer. People are much more search savvy now and tend to use phrases rather than words. Make sure as many of your phrases and keywords as possible are also used on the web page and meta description. A search engine will take notice of the relevance between all three.
